Poem – “Take my Worship” – Romance – 4/2/2020

Take my commands,

For they are nothing

To you, at the bedside

Where your toes glisten from the water,

And your breasts gleam from the oils,

While your eyes let loose the gazes

Down upon your hands.

Take nothing from me.

But, I will take you

Into myself,

With all your flesh, and all your secrets

Buried among unguarded peace.

Let the stars fall

From your universe,

Because, I want to capture the sun

And hang it upon my brow.

The heat,

And the sleep,

We’ve had to omit

To see

Ourselves, in each other’s eyes.
